Chicken Tikka Masala Pizza Recipe

Serves 2-3 | Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time: 15 Minutes


10 oz skinless and boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno, deseeded
Salt to taste
One (1) 12-inches store-bought pizza crust or three (3) 7-inches mini pizza crusts
Olive oil for brushing
1/4 onion, thinly sliced
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Handful of coriander leaves/cilantro, chopped, save some for garnish


1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground garam masala
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
Pinch of cinnamon

Tomato Sauce:

4oz tomato sauce
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 tablespoons heavy cream

Spice Mix:

1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garam masala


In a bowl, marinade the chicken with the Marinade for at least an hour in the refrigerator.

Line a layer of aluminum foil in a baking pan for grilling. Spread the marinated chicken in a single layer on the pan, discard the remaining marinade. Grill the chicken at 450F for 6-7 minutes, turning at half time.

While the chicken is cooking, prepare the Tomato Sauce and Spice Mix in separate bowls. Remove the chicken from the pan when it is done and discard the juice.

Heat a small sauce pan and melt the butter. Sauté the garlic and jalapeno until aromatic. Pour in the Spice Mix and sauté until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes on medium heat. Remove the jalapeno and discard.

Add in the Tomato Sauce and stir well to mix. Sprinkle salt to taste and continue to simmer until the sauce thickens, another 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the chicken meat into the sauce and mix well.

Pre-heat the oven to 450F. Place the pizza crust on a pizza pan and brush lightly with olive oil. Spread the sauce/gravy on the pizza crust. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese. Arrange the chicken on the pizza. Top it with the sliced onions, chopped cilantro and the remaining cheese.

Reduce the temperature to 425F. Bake the pizza for 8-10 minutes. Remove the pizza from the pan when is done and garnish the remaining chopped cilantro.

Cook’s Notes:

1. Bake according to the instructions on your pizza crust. Depending on the type of crusts you buy, the time and temperature may be slightly different.

2. If you prefer, you can stir fry the chicken instead of grilling it.

    I tried this recipe out last night. I used a block of extra firm tofu in place of the chicken (simply dry fried it, and marinated it in the listed ingrediants overnight). It was great! a nice change of pace from the same old pizza. Thanks, I’ll be making this again.

    I made this pizza last night and it is unbelievable! What an amazing combo of flavours. Hubby said this was he by pizza he’d ever had and demanded this be add to regular rotation! Thank you so much for this ingenious recipe :)

  3. As a lover of Indian food and pizza, this recipe suits me perfectly. Your use of tomato sauce and cream for the pizza sauce is ingenious…it will combine so well with the Tikka Masala spice. Thanks so much and I look forward to trying this soon!

    This looks soooo good. I just found a naan bread recipe and I am thinking that the naan bread would be great for the crust. Gotta try it! Thanks so much for the post.
